Seth Meyers on Monday mocked the matching hats Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe presented to President Trump over the weekend.
Meyers said during his show that Trump’s trip got off to a “rough start” when he flew to Hawaii, where former President Obama was born.
“Trump’s motorcade was greeted with protesters lining the streets, reminding him of his past as a birther, with signs like this one that said: ‘Aloha POTUS, welcome to Kenya,” Meyers said.
“There’s a good chance he saw that sign and thought he was actually in Kenya.”
Meyers then referenced when Trump landed in Japan. When he arrived, Abe gave Trump a hat that said, in gold writing: “Donald & Shinzo, Make Alliance Even Greater.”
“Abe is a smart man. He figured out the only way to communicate effectively with Donald Trump is via hat,” Meyers said.
Meyers then put on a white hate with similar gold writing that said: “Resign Donald.”
Meyers said the words on the hat presented to Trump “sounds like what you say to a monkey if you were teaching it sign language.”
“Human and ape make friendship stronger,” Meyers said.
Trump this week is kicking off his Asia-Pacific trip to meet with regional leaders, with a heavy emphasis likely on curbing North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.
The trip, which began Friday with a briefing from the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii, comes as tensions on the Korean Peninsula are rising.
He landed in Japan on Sunday, and is expected to visit China, Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea as part of the trip.
